The Boo-Boos That Changed the World: A True Story About an Accidental Invention by Barry Wittenstein
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is FANTASTIC. I love that it highlight show an accident can be an amazing and positive thing. I have always just took band-aids for granted and now I will never be able to look at them the same. They have rich history and it is worth knowing. The illustrations are just adorable and add so much to the story because as a new or young reader can follow the story through the images in the book. I, as a teacher and mother, love that there is a timeline in the back. It is such a cool way to show children how things progress and lead us to present day. A great book for the classroom!
